I'd say don't waste your money, but I've the feeling I'm in the minority on that. Jackson did nice work with the plot and it's all very pretty eye candy, but he butchered way too many characters. And the dialogue that doesn't actually come from Tolkien is usually clumsy and hackneyed.

lol - yeah. I re - re - reread it over the summer. Funny thing, I'd hoped at the end of Fellowship that Jackson would consider taking The Silmarillion on. Now I pray he keeps his hands off it.
